Update: SC Senate Votes on Replacement of School Buses

Written By: LaJuan Bobo - January 31st, 2018

The state Senate voted 44-0 Tuesday, January 23, 2018, to override Gov. Henry McMaster’s veto of $20.5 million to cover the cost of buying 210 new school buses.  That money will help the state cut the number of fire-prone 1995 and 1996 buses in operation to 349, better ensuring the safety of thousands of S.C. students who take the bus to school each day.

The new buses will be distributed across the state with each school district getting new buses by fall, said S.C. Department of Education spokesman Ryan Brown.
